The picture of this Eastern Towhee was taken at the Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge in Shirley, NY June 4, 2010. I used my CANON EOS7D with the 100-400mm lens to capture this bird in the low light of the forest. I used the CANON Speedlite 580EX II flash.
The Wertheim National Refuge contains a beautiful nature trail that goes through a White Oak forest. It was very easy walking on a very well maintained trail. There were a few box turtles about. We saw many Eastern Towhees and lots of Catbirds.
